Java SE Embedded Development Made Easy
By Jim Connors on Jun 01, 2011
Slowly but surely this old dog (who can learn new tricks, but at a snail's pace) came to the realization that although still quite relevant, a whole generation of people prefer not to read lengthy writings, but would rather digest information in small pieces using new media formats. Thus the rationale for the following blog...
Certainly no thespian when it comes to public speaking, I will say this: based upon my experience demonstrating Java SE on embedded devices, people have definitely expressed genuine interest. Maybe it was the cool device (i.e. Plug Computer) which was used, or maybe this combination of hardware and software inspired the audience to think of the possibilities presented by this new platform. Either way, I thought it might make sense to capture a shortened presentation/demonstration session. Following is a 30 minute session broken down into two 15 minute videos (because YouTube only allows videos of 15 minutes or less for mere mortals). They aim to demonstrate how developers already familiar with the Java SE development paradigm can leverage that knowledge to seamlessly develop on very capable embedded processors. Happy viewing!
